The Central London Market Report Q4 2013


Central London investment volumes totalled £18.4 billion in 2013,
up by 19% on last year’s total of £15.4 billion. New entrants to the
market are emerging from all around the world, and demand for
large lot sizes is growing, including from high net worth individuals.
 
The leasing market sprung back to life in dramatic fashion in 2013,
with full year take-up surging to 11.0 million sq ft, up by 54% on the
2012 total of 7.2 million sq ft. Market activity has been broad-based
across all sectors, as we have witnessed a re-emergence of activity
from banking, finance and energy related businesses.
 
The return of strong pre-letting activity was a key feature of the
market in 2013. The rise in pre-commencement and pre-completion
lettings reflects improved confidence from occupiers and also
increasing scarcity of new supply.
